The Mountain from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo.

When I was about 15 years old I contemplated the vast night sky and felt very, very small.  It was the first time I placed myself in the context of The Universe.  I was a little frightened and unnerved to feel utterly insignificant.

Now, many years later, I have a completely different perspective.  I feel perfectly inter-connected.  Scientifically it's been proven that we are composed of the same molecules as the stars!  It feels infinitely comforting to know that I am a part of something so beautiful, magical and majestic.

I feel extremely grateful today to be a part of everything that exists, to be able to recognize the nature of reality.  It's fleeting and ever-changing, exquisitely complex, and dazzling.

Great post. I read in Scientific American today something about the atoms in our fingernails are billions of years old and at one time where the stuff of stars. I really liked that, and I like your post also.
